Egyptian Six Pointed Star more than 5000 years old

A slate palette from a pre-dynastic cemetery at El Gerzeh (Girza), Egypt, from about 3500 -3000 BCE shows cow's head with a six-pointed star above its fore­head between the horns and five-pointed stars on the tips of its horns and ears

This palette is now in the Cairo Museum, exhibit number 34173, and is called Hathor (Egyptian goddess of the sky. Her principal animal form was a cow)
